Cookies, I am so very very sorry for your loss. There are no words at all, just know we are here for you.
If you ever want to talk privately send me a message.
Take all the time you need to grieve, I know it took me a long time last year after our loss to just get out of the house and do things again. Big hugs

Hello ladies

Cookies, I am so sorry for your loss. I can't even imagine how devastated you are now. Can't believe nothing was picked up earlier. If anyone is to blame it's your doctors. Huge hugs.

Maryanne, glad little lady is doing well and hope heart check goes well.

Afm, went to a 4D scan on Friday but little lady was fast asleep right next to the placenta which is anterior. She then turned her back to us ten minutes later... so we saw her legs well lol

I am going to go again on Monday in the hope of seeing more.

We have told quite a few friends now, but I am huge and round like a hot air ballon, so no point trying to hide it lol

Hope everyone else is ok

Maryanne and Sweetkat I'm glad to hear good updates from both of you! I hope everything continues to go smoothly.

As for me I hit viability week! It's still way too early for me to feel comfortable if baby came early, but a milestone is a milestone! I'm continuing to exercise most days and am feeling really good. I'm hoping I continue to feel good as this pregnancy progresses along more.

Cookie Im so sorry! There's nothing I can say to erase the pain but just grieve at your own pace, and my thoughts are with you.

Sweetkat too funny about the ultrasound I had tree opposite problem, she was moving so much they couldn't get clear pictures or all the measurements. Hope it goes better at the next one.
Karoolia, yay for viability week! Don't laugh at my slowness but which week is viability now? With my sua, I am paranoid over everything and milestones are definitely important no matter how small. And viability is totally an amazing one.

Afm I'm tapping my fingers waiting for another appointment. Google and forums pertaining single umbilical arteries have so many scary risks, however shoal there chance is...that I'm almost paralysed with fear. Doctor mentioned nothing on what I found other than a risk for low birth weight..m which makes me nervous because either they aren't telling me everything, or they have little experience with it.. my kids were always below average on size anyways, so I'm definitely starting to feel the worry on low birth weight. Idk, maybe after my next ultrasound is she's still on track, then i can lighten up, but until then I can't stop worrying about it.

24 weeks is considered viability. Obviously the further along the better. A baby born at 24 weeks would still struggle a lot, but 24 is the point that most doctors agree there is a decent chance of keeping the baby alive, I think I read somewhere that the stat is 50-70% born between weeks 24 and 25 survive.

Yes I have been reading statistics about viability at 24+ weeks and they are good, although anything after 30 weeks is even better and after 35 is almost as good as full term.

I am randomly awake since 4.30am - it's the constant needing to pee that wakes me up... grrrrr

I went for another 4d scan yesterday and managed to get some pics although they said I could go for a free rescan in a few weeks. They also did all the measurements and apparently this little lady will be a little bit bigger than her sister at birth (DD was 7 pounds and they are predicting 7.5 pounds for DD2).

Also, someone at the supermarket asked me if I am ready to drop. I was like yes, but I have 3 months to go!!!! 3 months seems like hardly anything and a looooong while at the same time

Karoolia, yey for viability.

Kirsten, if baby is doing well apart from the cord I would try to keep calm - easier said than done, I know.

Xxx

Ya, I wouldn't feel very good about baby coming now. After 30 weeks though I wouldn't worry as much and after 35 I wouldn't worry at all. Although I'm hoping this baby comes right around it's due date.

I'm doing an online degree and will have assignments due in February. All my courses will be over at the end of March so if baby comes on time I will only have 3 weeks of trying to figure out school work, but at least it will mostly just be readings and online discussions at that point. If baby comes early I may need to get some extensions.

Hi Ladies, how is everyone doing?
We are having our 24 Week growth scan on Friday. I am actually not feeling nervous yet, which is completely new for me. I have been feeling more movement so I think in my head I am like, if I am feeling things this baby has to be getting bigger...
still using the Doppler now, but more for hubs to hear the heartbeat. We got some more gel from amazon so we can go crazy now with it.
Decided we will tell parents the gender at Christmas. Going to buy cute little onesies with sayings for everyone. I am excited about it.

Anyone thinking about Christmas plans already, or getting some baby things ready?
I am officially buying/trading for a small bay item this week. It is a little chair that sings and vibrates. I don't know if it will be used but it is super cheap I am getting it for a home made Christmas ornament so I thought why not!?
